http://blogs.wsj.com/bankruptcy/2015/07/13/rapper-50-cent-files-for-bankruptcy/ Any young-in's here will know this guy, he was a rapper that got shot "9 times" and spun that into a career that included a few "club bangers" a movie, some mines in Africa and a vitamin water concern. He's pretty darn rich now. Then he got sued over some sex tape scandal and has to pay $5 million. This resulted in him declaring chapter 11. What really grinds my gears over this story is what's being played out on my Facebook feed. SO MANY people are posting jokes about him being broke and the such, what bothers me is the lack of any understanding what's going on here. Chapter 11 doesn't mean your broke! It's pretty concerning how little the general public understand finance. What do you guys and gals think?
